I want to execute some commands for my Safari web browser mainly to disable auto-refresh. And it is seems that the only way to do so, is to use the terminal to write commands. But I am using windows 7 and I am not sure how/where I can open the terminal? As I know that Terminal are used inside Unix?

EDITED::

I have run the following command on windows 7 "C:\Program Files (x86)\Safari\Safari.exe" /enableInternalDebugMenu" . but the problem I am acing now is that there is no option to stop auto-refresh under the debug menu. I am using safari 5.1.7.any idea?. I have un-checked the "Use multi-process tabs" option, but it did not solve the auto-refresh problem.

Windows has a terminal (a couple if you include PowerShell), but their syntax is very different to Unix/Linux shells. What commands in particular are you looking to translate from *nix to Windows?

To open the normal terminal (Command Prompt), Win+R -> cmd -> enter. Also note that Windows uses backslash \ as the path separator, rather than the Unix forward slash /.

    @MarkCowan, you can edit your original post isntead of adding details via the comments. Editing your post is preferable here on SU. – Dave Sep 17 '13 at 13:43
  • @JohnJohn that looks like some Apple-specific program that you're calling, you'd probably be best looking on the Apple support forums or the Safari for Windows documentation. – Mark K Cowan Sep 17 '13 at 15:47

The way to disable auto refresh under the debug menu is to uncheck 'Use Multi-process Tabs. Btw, Safari under XP crashes and dumps intermittently anyway, but I sometimes use it because I am a pack rat and have too many open tabs on all the other browsers :-)
